The deadline for selecting your seven-person fantasy chess team is 3 PM today. (I’ll post my team after the deadline because, if you drafted the very same players and we end up winning, we’d have to split the 80 GB iPod that is the first prize, and I don’t want to give up 40 gigs). The contest is based on the total points scored by the members of your team in the 2007 U.S. Chess Championship that begins today in Oklahoma and runs through May 23. The first U.S. championship was held in 1845.
